Young Soldiers perform at Edmonton primary school to warn against gun and knife crime
Young people performed at a school yesterday to spread their message against gun and knife crime.
The campaigners, called Young Soldiers, sang and danced during a multicultural evening at Latymer All Saints Church of England Primary School in Hydethorpe Avenue in Edmonton.
The group, led by Pastor Pat Agdomar, visit schools in the borough to encourage young people to focus on education and stay away from crime.
The crew spent ten minutes on stage, and performed a street and ballet dance as well as singing their song Believe and Achieve.
Pastor Pat, who trains the youths to be mentors and role models, said: “It was really good. The young soldiers sang and danced because young people love that; it’s a language they understand.
“Unfortunately gun and knife crime is still one of the evils at the moment, not just in Enfield but all over the world.
“But this absolutely made a difference, you could tell from their faces. The school was packed out, that says something.”
The pastor has worked as a minister with the Edmonton-based Glory of the Cross for more than 30 years.
